So the dealer told me to bring it in once it hit 20 hours. That's fine. Does anyone know what they actually do!? If I hadn't had their prepaid maintenance, the bill was $358!!! I do see I have a new air filter... which brings me to another question. My original filter was oily and yellow. This one is dry and red. Why the change?! And what does that metal basket do!?

You should read your Owners Manual Daniel Son! They adjust your valves, change oil and filters etc

hmm... not sure how much gold is in texas... is the foam filter by itself, equal to an aftermarket foam filter?

how is it compared to a velocity or k&n?

So why'd they go from a yellow oily filter to the dry UNI filter? Wouldn't I be able to take the basket out of the inside and isn't that an aftermarket filter right there?

Just like anything, a UNI foam filter should be a better quality filter compared to a stock filter, atleast that's the idea. The K&N isn't a foam filter and may flow a little better, but also doesn't filter as well.

The oil is to make stuff stick to it, it's just like another line of defense. Don't know why they didn't oil it, but you should.

Wait. You confused me.

Is the $120 for the 20/hr service filter or for the velocity?
$120 is for the airfilter/pre filter (outerwear) and coupling adapter thing.

20/hr service was $358

I'm just now trying to justify spending $120 on another filter, when the one they put on the quad yesterday might be just as good if you took that basket out.

You cannot just simply take the basket out, The filter will collaspe. Almost all aftermarket filter will out perform the stock one by great margins

You could drill the stock basket though.

Three really, 2 stock filters and one Uni.
Huh?! You mean just put big holes but let the basket keep its integrity?
